“Couldn’t let this week pass without saying a huge thank you to the incredible staff at Holles St Hospital who took such good care of Fiona and Sam.

Special thanks to Rachael, Olivia, and Alison for minding us all during the labour and delivery.

“Most of all, thanks to our consultant, Dr. David Crosby for being so sound, supportive, and available to Fiona during the pregnancy and throughout her stay in the hospital.”
